    High Fantasy

    A Plague of Giants is a new book by Kevin Hearne and is the first book in the Seven Kennings series. I am a fan of his Iron Druid series so I was looking forward to reading this book. And unfortunately I was somewhat disappointed in this new book. It is a standalone but it is open-ended for the next book. There is violence, this is a story about war after all. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. The storyline is high fantasy, and like most high fantasy it is not the easiest to read. The author doesn't tell a straightforward story, but has a bard relate the stories from the view of others who experienced them. One problem I had with the book is that the story was told from too many points of view. This book has plenty of twists, turns, and surprises. But you have to be willing to stick with reading it. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Random House/Ballentine. I chose to write a review for other readers.

    Fantastic start to a great epic fantasy trilogy

    The craft with which this bard's tale is woven is that of a true artist. Although it is essentially the story of a war, it is peppered with humour and enough bawdy similes to lighten the tone immensely. I don't countenance the modern propensity to LOL, but I did indeed frequently while reading this book. This is a trilogy with the first story arc completed but there were ample threads left dangling that have me chomping at the bit for the next instalment. Can't wait for Seven Kennings #2.
